Another excellent early evening family meal to celebrate a birthday with a 1-year-old and 5-year-old. Attentive, quick and efficient service with a wide choice menu to satisfy any diner. A regular restaurant for our family events, they make children welcome and will happily bring out...the celebration birthday cake with a host of singing waiters. The beer is cold and the food hot and in decent portion size.More

My partner and I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have never been disappointed. The greeting on arrival is always welcoming and friendly. All the staff are very pleasant, helpful and efficient even when the restaurant is very busy. The food is superb...and always arrives hot at the table. In my opinion it is the best Turkish restaurant I have been to anywhere. We love it. There is an added plus for myself - a fierce critic of incorrectly made Irish Coffees - they also serve the best Irish Coffee I have ever had in any bar or restaurant anywhere (outside of Ireland). Presented perfectly both in appearance, style and taste. Thank you Havet. A special thank you to Veni too for his great service. Always a great atmosphere at this restaurant. We love it.More

I was worried by some of the reviews but I was surprised by this restaurant. We arrived as a party of 7 last night - be aware that parking could be an issue during the day, but it's ok after 6pm. I found all the...staff were very friendly and professional. Our orders arrived in good time, and the food was excellent. The value was excellent as well. I will return.More

It was funny, my husband thought I wanted to eat here, and I thought HE wanted to eat here. In reality, neither of us did…but thought we were pleasing the other party! lol The Abilene Paradox! Anyway, apart from having to move table to get...away from two builder-types who had doused themselves with Lynx, the service was good and so was the food. The sweet rice (I think that’s what it was called) was a really good accompaniment to the other dishes and there was an almost impossible amount of food…large servings!More

I came here whilst in Tonbridge for the Day. The restaurant was really busy with friendly staff. I had the choice of 2 mains and the side dishes. I like how you can choose your own meat and side dish as a combo. The restaurant...was really nice and the food tastes good. Great tasty lamb chops. I would definitely come here again.More

We have been regular customers for six years and lately we have been very underwhelmed by the lack of decent service at this restaurant. We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary this evening and I mentioned to the waiter, after waiting for 20 mins to...even get a drink, that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, so we ordered champagne, and we were not shown any special attention or offered anything from the restaurant. We received slow, mediocre service. As regular customers, I can say that we were treated as though this was our first ever visit! We even walked out a few weeks ago because we were ignored for twenty minutes after being seated and couldn’t even get the attention of a waiter to get a drink. A disappointing experience and I’m not happy spending money here anymore. You should value your loyal customers!More

I have been going to Havet for several years, normally once every couple of weeks with my daughter and the other half. Initially the Tonbridge branch, occasionally and Tunbridge Wells when that opened too. They have some good mid-week offers if you're not working during...the day that sometimes bring the price down to the level of sensible. This is the problem, when we go out as a family it's at the weekend and the bill for the three of us is North of £80 excluding tip with only a couple of glasses of flat coke adding drinks t the bill. Havet used to be good value and good food, now its good food but far too expensive for what it is. We're coming in from Sevenoaks which has a Turkish restaurant that is at least as good if not better and is considerably better priced, so we'll be using that from now on.More

Attended here on a Saturday for a family celebration. The restaurant was heaving - luckily we had booked. There was 4 of us, it was very hard to hear each other talk so you end up just getting louder and louder. The food itself was...lovely - but the service very very slow - and the staff really do seem to go out of their way to avoid you which I find bizarre. I would attend again maybe lunchtime would be more suitable - as literally too many tables booked in evenings.More

Once again we went to Havet for a small family get together. There were empty plates all round. The food as usual was amazing. The atmosphere is superb. And the service couldn't have been better.
